Tips on Tuesday

For today’s Tip on Tuesday we’re going to be looking at Facebook and how we can create business relationships on there.

I think many people see Facebook as a more frivolous social media vehicle.  However, you can just as easily make business contacts. Find a page you want to make contact with and “Like” them, but make sure you Like them as your business page and NOT as your personal profile.

To do this, head to their profile page.  You will see the standard “Like” button, together with further buttons.

How to Like as Business Page

If you hover the cursor over the “More” tab, you will get a drop down menu, one of which is “Like as your page”.  Selecting this option will bring up a list of all pages you manage and you can select which page you want to Like as. 

Alternatively, from your business homepage, click the “See Pages Feed” section on the right hand side of your homepage which will bring up a “Like Other Pages” option.

The bad news is that you can only do this from a device via a browser and not using the Facebook/Facebook Pages app.


Tips on Tuesday

Today’s Tip on Tuesday is a generic social media tip and in response to a question I was asked at a networking event.

Very early in our Tips on Tuesday segment, we did a post on creating a brand.  I was asked how that would fit in with using profile pictures and avatars as an advertising spot for special offers, job opportunities etc.

 Make sure your logo also appears on your website and as a favicon.  You really cannot overuse that image which makes you visible. 

As long as it is instantly recognisable that the account is YOU, you can’t go far wrong with your use of imagery!

For today’s tip we’re going to take a look at Facebook profiles

Facebook Aire Media BlogIt is really important to ensure that your company information is as complete as possible on Facebook.  A lot of people think because it is “only” Facebook that this doesn’t matter, but it makes a good impression and is a free and easy way of getting all your relevant information in the public domain.

Make sure your profile includes your website address, your location, your opening hours and a concise description of what your business does.  It is also important that when you’re choosing the relevant business type you choose the most appropriate.

Remember a good Facebook profile makes a good first impression!  It also makes it easy for your customers and potential customers to find you.  Isn’t that great?!

Tips on Tuesday

Today’s tip is about using a new tool on Twitter.


Did you know you can now add Gifs into tweets?  This can be a really great marketing tool.  It won’t work for every tweet you write, but add an appropriate Gif into one of your tweets and it will catch people’s eye.  Don’t overuse the tool, but a carefully shared Gif can ensure certain tweets reach further.

LinkedIn in a great way of networking if your marketing model is business to business.

Keep your company profiles spruced up.  That isn’t to say you need to have masses of content.  But keep what you have fresh and current.

Make sure your logo is on your page together with your employees’ details.  Ensure all contact details are up to date and your website is clearly linked.

Make it easy for potential customers to contact the person they need to!  The easier it is for them, the more likely they are to do it!

Pinterest is a really great way of showing your company’s personality.  You can afford to be a little frivolous on Pinterest. 

Why not create boards for all your employees to share the things they love.  It changes a faceless company into a group of people potential customers can really relate to because their personality shines through.

It’s great to be professional.  It is brilliant to be professional with personality.

Did you know that YouTube is the second largest search engine and processes over 3 billion searches a month.

Having a YouTube channel can be a real bonus for your brand……if you use it wisely.  Keep videos professional looking and less than one minute in length.  lengthy videos simply lose people’s attention and it is virtually impossible to get them back!

Today’s tip is to create an original hashtag for your marketing campaign.  Rather than using a hashtag that is already created, find something new and unique that reflects your brand.  And then use it.  Use it wherever you can and become a voice.

Tips on Tuesday

For today’s Tip on Tuesday we’re going to advise on something that can be applied to all your social media channels.

I am sure you will have all been followed by accounts on your social media platforms that promise “1000 followers for $10” and other variations.

Our advice is simply don’t.  You won’t be buying real followers, it will just be a raft of accounts specifically created for this purpose.  If you buy a large number of followers, the quality of your audience will be diluted and the impact of your posts will diminish.

Never has the old saying “quality over quantity” been more apt.
